Welcome to the dance.

There are a few out there, this is where your computer comes in handy, just call up coil overs, and you will be surprised at what pops up.

That is how any of us would find them.

To get the right ones you will have to know what your car weighs, both front and back half.

There may not be a set of direct bolt in coil overs but companies like AFCO or QA1 will have something that you can make work with some fabrication. Both of these companies have formulas that you can use to calculate the 'pound' requirements once you have that fore and aft weight AND the installed angles that Bob noted above. And they are usually less then you would expect.
